Great ambiance. This reataurant vibes with the festive spirits which I assume each holiday or event occassion. Overall good experience. Recommended for groups.
Great service can't say that enough! Food was very flavorful and delicious. It is kind of pricey but a fun spot.
This place was pretty good, lively and the service was alright. The waitress tried hard to break it to us nicely that there was no chicken left in the restaurant (we had a 815p Rez). Blood orange margaritas were good.
As Always this Spot is Awesome and Good for those Who Love Mexican Food.
Friends getting together for brunch, we each had a wonderful dish and if I could spell I would list them. The staff was very courteous. We would reccomend this restaurant.
Smaller venue. Great food. Casual/slower service, but worth it if you arent in a hurry.
We came for restaurant week and had a great experience! We appreciated the pace of the meal- we were in a relaxed mood and really taking our time but the courses came out at appropriate times- no rushing through. I had a margarita flight which was awesome. Loved our date night!
The flavors and spices in the tacos and appetizers were superb, especially the cucumbers. I can't believe how good simple cucumbers can be. Loved the Pequeno Bowl too.
We were seated about 30 minutes after our reservation time. We ordered chips and salsa as an appetizer, but our food came out first. We didn't eat much of the chips and salsa but still had to pay for it. Overall it was an expensive dinner for not that great of service.
We decided to give Barrio Star one more try. The first time we ate there it was so delicious and the service was great - this was a couple of years ago. After that we had been back a couple more times with the last time having a horrrendous meal/service. I purchased a groupon and thought ok one more time. We were very happy - the service was great - the margarita flight was so yummy. My husband had the 3 taco plate and I had the pollo diablo. Both were great. It wasn't crowded so we think they've lost most of their clientele - but we will definitely be back hoping the meal/service stays spot on!
Had a 9.15 reservation and got in just before the kitchen closed at 9.30
They were out of some dishes and the rice cold. Taco's were great
Our server was absolutely outstanding AND we found out it was her birthday at the end of the night. She gave us great recommendations of chile relleno for my boyfriend and I got the taco plate with the salmon, steak and spicy chicken options. We loved both and she was so kind! I wish I could remember her name... but her birthday is August 30! :)
Tried this on a whim because Open Table offered it up as a suggestion. Overall, it was pretty great. A couple little quirks keep it from a five-star experience (i.e. Undercooked rice in the side dish and an uninspiring tortilla soup), but everything else was great. Chips and salsa were just different enough from traditional to be notable. My husband had a carnitas torta and I had fish tacos, both of which were excellent. And even with undercooked rice, the flavor on the rice and beans side dish was great. The blood orange margarita was yummy. Service was spot on.
Grabbing a bite with out of town friends. The food and drinks were excellent as always. Great time socializing and catching up.
Barrio Star has become our new favorite neighborhood restaurant. Service is excellent. We love being seated in the back room. Food is always delicious and we can have a healthy Mexican dinner!
I was worried about ordering coconut rice in in the Brazil bowl at first considering it's billed as Mexican cuisine, but it was delicious! The tofu was almost charbroiled but still quite soft and flavorful.
Been back twice to experience more of the menu.
Excellent, interesting food in a casual atmosphere
Awesome food - neighborhood gem!! Great drinks and fun atmosphere.
Had a friend in town and wanted to find something unique. Found this restaurant on OpenTable and never heard of it before but it seem to have great reviews. Amazing dinner. The customer service was awesome. They treated us like we were the only people in the restaurant. The food was good and I would highly recommend it. We will definitely be going back again in the future
